Very nervous for my next test.
May 30, 2013
I've had a few hiv antibody test after unprotected vaginal sex all negative last one being a rapid test done by blood drawn from vein and sent to lab same with all my other tests have all been lab tests. Last one was 10 months after exposure. Starting shortly after exposure till now I've had horrible symptoms that are building up: extreme eye floaters, very bad muscle fatigue and twitching, uncomfortable feeling in my urethra, oral thrush on tongue, light colored stools. I am a male. I tested negative for all other stds, and hepatitus at 6 months after exposure, and also have all of a sudden high blood pressure. I'm terrified for all these symptoms only point to hiv. I tested positive for mono with a monospot test a month after exposure, but my doctor says mono doesn't last this long. It's almost a year now!!! He also says there is no way it's hiv. I dunno what else to do and I'm so scared this Friday I made another apptmnt and know he's just gunna call me crazy and won't test me for anything again when I ask. How am I not making antibodies? I had a normal immune system test. I just don't get it.

I agree with your doctor. This is not HIV. Any testing done at 90 days or later would be considered conclusive. You are well outside of that window.
However, if these symptoms continue then you should work with your doctor to determine what IS causing them.
